Northup, Solomon: Twelve Years A Slave. V1. 21 Jan 2014

With the present publicity for the film this book which was published in 1853 appears to have been overlooked as a candidate for ebook conversion.

Quote:
Solomon Northup (July 1808 - after 1857) was a free-born African American from Saratoga Springs, New York. He is noted for having been kidnapped in 1841 when enticed with a job offer. When he accompanied his supposed employers to Washington, DC, they drugged him and sold him into slavery. From Washington, DC, he was transported to New Orleans where he was sold to a plantation owner from Rapides Parish, Louisiana. After 12 years in bondage, he regained his freedom in January 1853.

Thanks for that,...seems to be nicely cleaned up.
The Archive org. version was a bit of a mess.
I think I'll read it first and see the film in a year when the hype has died down.
170 years on and we still haven't eradicated slavery from the world... not even in the ''civilised west''.....a painful thought.

Thanks for the epub. I notice you use px for margins etc, but I don't think that scales well. What do you think?

I normally use ems, however If I build the EPUB using LibreOffice and export to EPUB then everything finishes up in px. I usually then hand edit the css to use ems but in this case I must have missed doing it.
